I am impressed with the production and impressed with Arlen and Cynthia Isaak . I am the one that say’s we have to guide the younger generation and pass on our tools of life. I love how this couple, the younger generation has produced this project and spreading the word. I was glued to every word in each episode. I was satisfied with questions I always had, I cried when my heart was touched. I attend a bible study each week with my church in Chatsworth, California, USA and cant wait to ask them if they have seen Tetelestai. I have two Grandsons, 16 and 9 years of age. I am having challenges with my 16yr old completing his confirmation with the Catholic Church. Confirmation is a completion of their Baptism . They Confirm their faith and promise to live by in their own words on how God wants us to love each other and follow Jesus’ example. I teach Sunday school to 1st and 2nd graders preparing for their 1st communion and have been my Grandson’s teacher though their journey. My goal is to give them a foundation of their faith during their younger years with hopes they continue. When I look at these little faces now with Sunday School I am more confident with my teachings. Thank you Arlen and Cynthia, I will never forget you. I am looking forward to future teachings.

Hello, I wanted to reach out to first  tell you that  watching your Tetelestai series has changed my life.  I did not have the understanding, the depth of knowledge of  this eternal story of redemption.  I didn’t quite understand  all the things  I was always told  as a child by my church and parents.  I always struggled  understanding anything the Bible said because of the language.    Because of this, I never did read the Bible.  The way you broke down  the words and explained its definition, the way you  repeated certain things…. I truly understand now. Thank you for creating this series…. Thank you for your time and please continue doing  God’s good work.

Dear Light In Action Team, Happy New Year. I am a Christian worker that lives and works in Indonesia….We work with young people groups and think this would be excellent small group discussion material…. We believe there is a great need for media driven, scripturally sound presentations such as yours,  and would be very effective for small group discussions we are initiating… Your material does not shy away from the importance of Scripture being relevant to today’s fearful, confused and seeking young adult.  It is also fresh to see such young presenters. Blessings

I happened across your series Tetelestai on Amazon. The writing and acting was super. In particular I was taken with the picture of the slain lamb before Adam and Eve. I hadn’t thought of that before in that way… thanks so much… what can I say? I was so impressed with the excellent theology combined with thoroughness and an appropriate amount of poetic license…I have really been thinking about a neighborhood study. This may be just perfect!

I recently found your Tetelestai series… viewed the first four so far and am really impressed…. I’m looking at using it in our small group discipleship and evangelism groups….I think it really meets a need among younger people and am looking forward to using it….We feel the Lord’s leading to use ‘Tetelestai’  both as a follow up to the Alpha and also as a growth course for both new (of which we have many) and mature Christians. We intend to run the course for both believers and unbelievers, but we will expect those who are Christians to invite an unsaved family member or friend along and it will be made clear that its main thrust will be evangelistic…I belong to Greenisland Baptist in Northern Ireland and am currently the Missions coordinator.

I don’t know if it was just the timing of when I watched your video(s) or the way you  presented the information, but I finally get it!  I love the way the video presented the old testament background and how it shows that God hasn’t changed and our desire for eternal life is granted if we just simply trust in what he says, that Jesus was the sacrificial lamb for ALL of our sins, past and present.  Until now, I could never see it; it seemed too easy, but your depiction of the snake lifted up cinched the deal… I’m still somewhat dazed by the simplicity of this and can’t help but hear those words about they have eyes but cannot see and ears but cannot hear…  I told my wife about your program and we started watching it together last night (from the beginning, so a repeat for me) and I’m catching more of your and Arlen’s message this time…. Every time you point out how these ancient events in the Old Testament are telling us the same story, over and over, but in different ways, it’s  just amazing to me.

Hi, I started watching Tetelestai yesterday. Today I am in the third chapter. Pray for me and my soul. It is difficult to talk about my real situation, I have no one I can trust and the only person I can trust is my wife but I am afraid to tell her the truth about me. I feel like I’m holding a mask for the world and for my family, but inside, I’m dying. I feel like I’m walking through a desert and I can’t take it anymore. I’m thirsty and tired. Many years ago, someone told me about the Gospel. I started going to church, praying daily and reading the Bible. My life changed so radically that I couldn’t hide it from my family. I used to go to the river every day, after work, to pray to the Lord and read His Word, but unfortunately I was young and I took my eyes completely off the Lord. Since then I have tried several times to return to the Lord, but I just can’t. It seems to me that I walked so far from home that I forgot how to get back. 10 years have passed… I just need to find the way back to first love and maybe that’s why Tetelestai got my attention. The series reminds me of the simplicity and purity of the Gospel, when I first met and started reading about it.

It is awesome to see young people sharing truth from the heart.  Over just a few days I watched all 11 episodes… Each episode reminded me of the plan of salvation, my need for a Savior and God’s provision of one: I have disobeyed God. I deserve to die. Jesus is my substitute. The message is put simply and clearly, contained in each episode yet being revealed more as the series progresses… We are a family of believers and I have been very excited to discover the Tetelestai material. God laid it on my heart to share it over the summer with my boys, aged 10 and almost 15. I want to find scriptures to explore the main topics more deeply as appropriate to the interest and level of elementary/middle school and high school. Soon I discovered the participant and leader’s books and got copies from Amazon… We appreciate your work, and thank you for your support.

Our Brothers*,

Amazon jungle, south america.

"We are rejoicing together in the One who had been promised from the beginning... After all, the Christmas story didn't start in Nazareth or Bethlehem, it started way before that, and it isn't done yet either."

«We had a Tetelestai movie marathon from 9 am to 9 pm. We interspersed episodes of Tetelestai with games, food, and singing. We are rejoicing together in the One who had been promised from the beginning, who would crush the serpent’s head, who would be the atonement for our sins.  After all, the Christmas story didn’t start in Nazareth or Bethlehem, it started way before that, and it isn’t done yet either… Not until the Lamb who was slain takes the scroll and opens it, and all the elders fall down and worship, ‘Worthy is the One who was slain, and who purchased with his blood men from every tribe and tongue and language and nation!»

"People are coming away saying, ‘We are seeing the glory of God. We are seeing Him more clearly, understanding His character, Who He is and what He is like.’"

«I live in Scotland, UK and wanted to thank you so much for the incredible production. At the moment, I have been having about 6-7 Tetelestai groups each week. It is fantastic how God is using Tetelestai! It is a tremendous resource. People are coming away saying, ‘We are seeing the glory of God. We are seeing Him more clearly, understanding His character, Who He is and what He is like.’ These films are honestly some of the best resources I have seen and I have a library of about three and a half thousand videos — great Christian materials, but Tetelestai is the best. The quality, both in terms of biblical soundness and also in terms of production values makes it the best material that I have ever come across in terms of chronological teaching. It is absolutely superb.»

João PEdro

Natal, RN, Brazil.

"I really like Tetelestai and watched it several times."

«My name is João Pedro (John Peter). I am 12 years ago and I live in Natal, RN. I love bible stories but I was even more excited to see Bible stories in Libras (Brasilian sign language). I really like Tetelestai and watched it several times. My favorite episodes are the episodes about Adam and Eve and the crucifixion. I started to understand the Bible better and today I can share it with other deaf people. Tetelestai in Libras is a gift for all deaf people in Brazil.»

Pr. Mark Snyder,

Arizona, United States.

" ‘I can’t wait 'till next week.’ "

«We had 9 people at the ‘Shade of Gray’ tattoo parlor tonight for the first chapter of Tetelestai. The response was very positive: 

— ‘I expected it be like all the other video studies, but it wasn’t!’

— ‘It kept my attention.’

— ‘I can’t wait ’till next week.’

I am praying that God will do a real work… Thanks for a great job!!»

"After working in the film and theatre industry as an actress, director and designer it was a stretch for me to believe that a Christian series could live up to the same industry standard I was used to."

Andrezza A. de França,

Natal, RN, Brasil.

"She would look into the face of each one and ask one simple question: 'Who is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world?' "

"I have many friends who, like I used to be, will never step foot into a church... Now they are accepting my invitation to study the Bible with me using Tetelestai..."

Pr. Clay Conry,

South Dakota, United States.

"I was blown away by the level of theological accuracy they were able to put on paper. My group was all young uninitiated middle-school boys and they nailed the answer!"

Pr. Zerihun Hailemichael,

Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

"We have been able to translate and dub the Tetelestai series in Ethiopia’s national language, Amharic, and soon it will be aired by all the major evangelical stations."
